Andrus Allikas's photo “Crisp Morning” was named nature photo of the year, receiving the Suur Hunt (Big Wolf) trophy and a trip to Tanzania as a prize.

The winner was announced on Monday night at the Estonia Concert Hall. The competition was held for the 14th time and this year, and attracted nearly 8,500 submissions from 1,150 photographers, reported on Monday.

The winning photograph was taken at the Kaberneeme beach this year, on the coldest morning of the winter, Allikas wrote in the accompanying text.

The Ministry of the Environment chose Indrek Ladva's photo of a family of storks as its favorite and Eesti Energia, one of the co-organizers, praised Marko Poolamets.

All awarded works can be viewed on the competition's website (in Estonian).

The competition is organized by the web portal Looduse Omnibuss, the Estonian Conservation Society and Eesti Energia.
